Sending care packages to pediatric cancer patients and their families was Mathias’ idea and he gave specific instructions on what should be included. Mathias felt strongly that the care packages should include items for the entire family, especially siblings, and he wanted every patient that received a package to know it was made just for them. We include items that are useful as families go through treatment, as well as fun and personal items chosen with the child and siblings’ interests in mind. Per Mathias’ instructions, we do not hand deliver packages to patients. Instead, they are mailed or given to a family friend.
We need your help to grow our Care Package program. Please contact us for information on sponsoring a package or donating items.
